HOW TO RESTORE SOILED ENGRAVINGS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 30 August 1898

I-HOW TO RESTORE SOILED ENGRAVINGS. When prints or engravings are much soiled or discolored, the following simple directions are said to be most successful in restoring them:-The chosen one should be fastened by drawing-pins to one end of the drawing board on which it is laid, and then covered thinly with salt, over which'lemon-juice must be squeezed so as to partly dissolve it. A kettle full of boiling water should be at hand and after one end of the board has been lifted to an angle of about 45 de grees the water should be carefully poured over the print or engraving until the mixture is completely washed off it. It must be kept in the same position to dry slowly and then be placed in a bath of very weak isinglass solution. When the gloss occasioned by the water is quite gone it should be placed between folded blotting-paper,upon which should rest some heavy books as weight. , The last operation when it is perfectly dry, is to put a piece of white paper over the face of the pictur...

KEEPING A NOTE OF EXPENSES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 30 August 1898

KEEPING A NOTE PF EXPENSES. Interested writes : -I have often thought it a very excellent habit for young wives of the working class to get into the way of marking into a regular book everything they purchase each time they go a-shopping, or even to keep a check on the grocer's account book. By carefully training themselves to do this I am confident very young housewives could save two and three shillings in the week. Let us not be afraid of going and scanning over our expenses every night for live or ten minutes, and to see what this or that costs, or if we can do with out such and such a thing. I am con fident that hundreds of our wives and daughters do not do this; or, in other word's, work awa' lippening to a bad memory, and not understanding either what they are spending or how they, are to pay up in the end of the week. To get one's self into this good habit will take great patience and perseverance, but I am certain it will abundantly re ward the raw young housewife in the en...

THE COLD CURE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 30 August 1898

THE COLD CtUJRE. Drs. Letulle and IRibard, of Paris. have developed, for the treatment of disease, a method which they call "'kry motherapy." As used in p)hthisis their method is described as follows in "ILa Presse Medicale" (Paris):--"Their plan is to apply, during about half an hour every morning, a bag containing about two kilogrammes pf solid carbonic acid to the epigastric and hepatic regions. The skin is protected by a thick layer of cotton vool, and maintains a tem perature of about-25 deg. C. [-13 deg. F.]. A second application precedes the evening meal. The temperature of solid carbonic acid is about -SO deg. C. [-112 deg F.]. Pietet. who first ex perimented on men and dogs with ex tremely low temperatures. thought that for temperatures below-G-(; deg. C. [ 76 dog. F.] the diathermancy of even bad conductors of heat is so much in creased that the rays traverse them like light passes through glass.

TRAFALGAR. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 30 August 1898

TRAFALG AR. The warm weather we have lately ex perienced is causing a good spring in the grass, and the milk supply is on the up-grade at the local factory. The work thern is fast nearing completion. The finishing touches, such as brick flooring, and a general lime-white washing inside and out have been completed. The inanageris now getting things cleaned up, so when the new boiler and engine are covered in and a new room for the tester, with hot and cold water laid on, it will be much more complete than ever it was before. It is intended to comply with the Agricultural Department's expressed wish that it should be photographed to the best advantage, to be sent, along with others of the best factories, to JMr. Sinclair's London office, so that our friends in the old land may see what we are doing to keep pace with the times and retain our reputation as butter producers. A truck of pigs was sent fromn here last Wednesday to a Melbourne firm by the 2.30 train. The account sales with c...

POOWONG. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 30 August 1898

POOWONG. At Poowong the pleasant outlook is a considerable improvement on that of a few weeks back. As no fresh reports are to hand regarding the mortality amongst stock, it is hoped that disaster has again been averted. The grass seems to be pretty backward, but with the milder weather an improvement is noticeable. Some ploughing is being done, mostly for early crops of potatoes- The main opera tions will be in full swing in a month's time. Lambing is also in progress. The sheep have done fairly well, as the close feed was more suitable for them. The cream supply will show a decided falling off this season.

NEERIM. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 30 August 1898

NEERIIM. The young grass is having a bad effect on cattle. A good few perished during the last fortnight, being too weak to stand its scouring effects. Cattle which are out on the wild grass of Crown lands are said to be quite fat. Orders have been rather slack at some of the mills this month, but sawmillers seem determined not to come down with. prices, which is only reasonable. An order for the hardwood for a. Roman Catholic Chapel for Jindivick has been left with a local sawmiller--another sign of the district's advance. Very little ground is being prepared for potato growing this season, farmers being afraid that potatoes may be cheap and not justify purchasing seed at present prices. An estimate of what the probable area under cultivation next crop will be would help them. A real good season is predicted in this district. All crops promise well, and there will be a big area of grass land. Though the light rainfall is quite up to present requirements, it is so unusual that some ...

LARDNER. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 30 August 1898

LARDUNER. Through the kindness of the Rev. T. Alday, the Sunday school library at Lard ner has been replenished with a splendid collection of new books (purchased from Mr. F. H. Small, WWarragul), which cannot fail to please every member of the con gregation. Gifts have also been sent for church service use. Mrs. G. W. Anderson kindly forwarded a cloth table cover, and Mr. Langdon, of Langdon and Penny, a reading desk. The enclosure round the Institute is also re: ^iving attention, Messrs T. and A. Currie of " Yulong" having sent posts towardsre-fencing the ground. The committee met on Wednesday to arrange for a working-bee to erect the fence next month. "Lardnerites" congratulate the " War ragulites" upon the prospect of again pos sessing a brass band. A favourable wind always wafts the sound of the measured bel)t on the drun to Lardner, a distance of over four miles. It is certainly rather iionotonous, but a reminder of civilization. Perhaps the new members will be able to treat u...

DISTRICT NEWS. DARNUM. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 30 August 1898

'DISTRICT NEWS. (Fno3r OUR CORRESPONDENTS). DARNUM. This portion of the Warragul Shire has a standing greviance against the Council on the score of alleged neglect, and there may be some reason for this complaint. The most active settlement followed a line running south from the W\arragul town ship, and, undoubtedly, the most part'of the money goes in that direction, and while the people at this end of the riding make every allowance for the more active settlement as indicated, at the same time they consider they are entitled to sonme consideration, at the least to the extent of the available revenue derived from this end. The timber trade of this portion of the riding tells severely on the roads, every winter log hauling or stave carting cuts up the bad spots and makes travelling a misery. But people must live, and this trade is one of the principal means of support to many people, so the remedy would seem to be--provide for the traffic. The timber trade has recovered from the depr...

FERNDALE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 30 August 1898

FERNDALE. The late strong winds have brought down it lot of timber about here. It was very rough while it lasted.. The grass is beginning to grow very well on the paddocks that are not stocked and on the new burns. A few fine days make a lot of difference now. An attempt to get our local hlose-bag shifted from MJr. J. Grhamuu's residence failed, for which a lot are well pleased. We are having some fine warm days lately which is sendinethe grass along at a great rate. There will soon be plenty of grass ?all round the district, but not near as much stock, on account of the death of a large number, many selectors not having half the number they had this time last year. Cattle that were sent out of the district for grass are being brought back in good muubers and are doing well. The foxes have made a start on the young lamunbs.

CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR UNITED MINERS' LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 30 August 1898

CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR UNITED MINERS' LEAGUE. Sir,--Will you allow me space to draw attention to the one-sided report of the meeting of the above league, held at Neerimn South on Saturday, the 3th inst, which appeared in the South Gippsland Express. I am a member of the above league, I was at the last " meeting, and I must say. although I am not one of its talking meinbers, I think a lot, and watch a lot, too. Now sir, what I want to know is, why leave out of the report, above referred to, a very imnportant remark of the league's secretary, who brought under the notice of the miners, the fact that a report sent into the Mining Board by Mr Lamond, the seal of the Gippsland Mining Board was attached thereto, and yet the application of A. Dabschack has never been finally settled by the said Board ? Then,. again, it was asked upon what authority was the seal attached, or by whom ? I take exception to' one or two more one-sided things sai. Here is one : Members present were eviden...

THE PRICE OF BREAD AND MEAT. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 30 August 1898

THE PRICE OF BREAD AND MEAT. Sir,-In reviewing the flour market we must be all convinced that our local bakers are having a profitable time at the expence of the public, considering that flour is at £8 15s a ton, with trade con cessions and we have to pay the exorbit ant price of 6d a large loaf, which cost about 4d. The time has arrived I think when every householder, if the local baker will not come down in his price, should commence to bake his own bread, which I have proved can be done at one half the cost. There is an opening for a co-operative bakery and butchery in \rWarragul, because each are getting at the consumer. Sandhurst can prove its usefulness both to the public and the shareholders. The matter rests between the supplier and the consumer and it is for the consumer to take whatever action he thinks desirable in the matter. Yours, etc. PATERFAMILIAS. [A correspondent writing- on this sub ject in the Age, says:-Anyone with eyes may see bread marked up in the suburbs at ...
